Did I miss any portion of Outlander that might explain why Jamie Fraser was called McDubh?

Is there any significance to being called "McDubh"?


I'd lost track of his myriad names across the years, so I had to look this one up.

From IndieWire - ‘Outlander’: Jamie Fraser’s Many Aliases From The Dunbonnet to Mac Dubh, Explained

Mac Dubh

The show first introduces this name in Season 3, Episode 3, “All Debts Paid” when Jamie is in prison. It’s a name that reveals how well the other prisoners know him and mixes a nickname, lineage, and Gaelic all in one. Jamie’s father’s name was Brian (hence, why Claire names their daughter Brianna), and was known as Black Brian. Therefore, that makes Jamie the son of the Black One, or in Gaelic, Mac Dubh.
